I love The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday posts, but I’ve never taken part in one. I figured I should try and change that, because it’s one meme that’s fun to read on any blog and the topic changes every week! Plus, who doesn’t like making lists?!
The following books are in no particular order- that would be way too difficult. I’m one of those crazy readers that likes to “torture” themselves with books about tough topics. I just find them fascinating, emotional, and often times beautifully written books.
-death of parents, cutting
-physical and sexual abuse, abortion, drug use, sexuality, suicide, grief.
-drug use, cutting, etc.
-this French novel (I read the English translation) revolves around a family that sells means to kill yourself (hence the suicide shop), but they have one son who is just too happy!
-I also just realized that this book was made into a French animation film and it’s one I hope to be able to see here in the U.S. sometime soon! It really is a great book, and not too long either!
-school shootings, bullying, etc.
-this is a non-fiction book about the Columbine shootings. Brooks Brown was childhood friends with one of the shooters, Dylan, so it’s a fascinating perspective.
-student/teacher relationship, illness/death
-I don’t want to tag this with anything for fear of spoiling the book, so just read it!
-suicide, bullying, etc.
-car accident, deaths, etc.
-eating disorders, death, guilt, cutting
